Today, Friday 11th of May 2018, is the day I finally launched this vision that I have been holding in my heart for so very long!
As a young girl, growing up in the cold English countryside, I used to sit and dream of sunny skies, living on a farm where my animals would never be eaten and I could paint and make pottery!
Fast forward a couple of decades and that vision was still holding strong for me. Stronger in fact.
I gave up eating animals at a tender age and was appalled at what had been put on my plate, without me realising what it was and where it had come from.
As soon as I made that connection I became vegetarian. My mother tolerated it as a 'phase' but over the years my convictions became stronger not weaker.
I am now vegan and over the years, navigating through adulthood, different countries and different jobs, I have kept up my voice for the animals. I have volunteered at sanctuary's, fostered, rescued, organised high profile events, I've even stripped naked and run through the streets! I've been in magazines, interviews on news channels, and through it all I've been searching for my place in the world, where I could finally buy that land, build that farm and create an animal paradise with a zero tolerance policy to any cruelty!
That day has finally come and with it my baby, this my online vegan shop, featuring products, all of my own designs and featuring my own paintings. I'm pretty proud of it and hope you will love the products as much as I do!
The profits from my shop are going to support the animal sanctuary to make its sustainable and ensure I have enough funds to keep it going and treat the animals in the standards they deserve.
My hope is with Bodhi Glow I can help promote kindness as a way of living, where we allow love and compassion to dictate all of our choices.
I look forward to sharing this journey with you all!!
